Hi..this is my first preference :) I intent to apply for round 1..I have a low GPA so don't know how much of a factor it will be.

Merage interviews are usually very casual, so don't get worked up. Practise running through the usual interview questions, and I'm sure you'll do well.
A friend of mine got put off by the "Describe a typical day at work" question; you might want to practice that one as well.

Your GMAT score is higher than their average, so your chances of landing a partial scholarship are pretty high.

All the best! :)

So I just had my interview today and I think it went very well. I'm not sure how much information I am allowed to give, but like rasta, said, it was very standard. No surprises. They basically just want to know about your background and why you want to attend business school, the usual stuff. If you are prepared and do your research then this interview should be no problem. The interviewer was very nice and she was already thinking of some classes I might be interested in visiting and some programs that I would probably like if I'm accepted. I should be hearing back from them in 3 weeks or so.

Did you schedule your interview with them yet? If not, you have to send them your resume and ask to schedule it and you should hear back within a few days. They are very quick and efficient, it seems. Good luck on the interview. As long as you are prepared, it should be fine.

I e-mailed back and forth regarding an interview date - I did submit my application and sent them my resume and they said they'll reach me back to see if they can arrange an interview when they come to Seoul Korea...hopefully I'll hear back from them soon. :)

So has anyone received any updates after their interviews? I did my interview last week, and I was told that I won't be able to know the result until December - did anyone else hear something different?

It's been a while since I posted, but just wanted to share that I've been accepted. I was notified 2 weeks ago so if you applied for R1 and haven't heard back yet, you should be hearing soon. I was notified via phone call.

I heard back about 3 1/2 weeks after my interview. If they follow that same timeline for you, I'd expect to hear back the first or second week of December.

Hey, first of all congratulations! :) I can't wait to hear back from the school. I am not quite sure how my interview went though, which worries me a bit. Half of my brain says it went well and the rest says it didn't. :( Fingers crossed until December.

Just curious, did they also notify you about the scholarships as well? Isn't everyone automatically considered for one?

Hi Guys,
Could you please share any information about the admission policy? Does Irvine require a deposit to be paid once admitted? If so, how much?

Thanks in advance

Thanks! Good luck to you. I'm not sure about scholarships, but they do consider everyone for fellowships and they will tell you automatically if you get one.

Yes, they do require a deposit of $1000 to be paid roughly 2-3 weeks after you are notified.
